Before this track many people i know, did not know of the Geto Boys, Once they heard this track everything changed. DJ's started playing this track and listening to the Geto Boys, the public could relate to it. This track is scary and not just violent and aggressive. The mind is complexe and unique TOOL and may be hard to understand. WHAT OTHER TRACK CAPTURES THIS ?, I LISTEN TO THIS TRACK AND I FEEL I AM NOT ALONE, OFTEN I FEEL LIKE THIS, I FIND HELP BY LISTENING TO THIS TRACK. THIS TRACK NEEDS TO HAVE A CLASSIC STATUS, AND USED AS THERAPY, I often play it when i think MY MIND IS PLAYING TRICKS ON ME.

Just an FYI here, the club version on the original pressing is actually just the original song with all the explicit language. Nice surprise for me who thought it was some sort of club remix of the song, actually get the original version without the censoring.

What more is there to say? One of the greatest, most haunting hip-hop songs ever created.
